I would say that a lot of the fast articulation of notes ie fiddle tunes and what not are breathing patterns that are done without attention being paid to each and every note played in the riff.
So a song like "Sailors Hornpipe" has a great descending run in it from the 7 down to 3 double bend so the notes in the run are a breathing in an out pattern till you hit the 3. For me it is all about hitting that 3. So I try for a smooth run then articulate the bend note then back to a breathing pattern ( the song has some great jumps in it).

I often practice Charlie Mc coy's version of "Orange Blossom Special" it is primarily a breathing pattern played pretty darn hyper fast. (he does swap between two harps but just a little bit)

I used to articulate a lot of my draw bends using something like de- do- dah almost exclusively.. till one day I realized there are many ways to get the various bent notes..all depends what song you're playing which approach you might take.

If you can get your hands on a Bflat harp, it will work better with the guitar in F. Bflat is the fifth on the F scale, so is an important note. It is possible to overblow the B note to flatten it, but that is a difficult technique to master,

In answer to your first question, yes, you will get the same sound playing a B harp in first position as you get in an F harp in second position.

As to playing guitar and harp, my knowledge is pretty rusty, but since B isn't in the key of F (it's a Bflat) I would say that the B harp wouldn't sound that good, unless you played it second position, thus moving back to the F key. But the best way is to try it out and see. Theory only gets you so far. If you like the sound and you think it makes sense then go for it.

Hello. I have a Oskar Smit Harmonica. It is in F. It says B. Second position . Can i play a B Harp to get the same sound as the second position. That way i can blow instead of draw. Thanks George Oh and if someone is playing the Guitar in the F position, will the B harp sound good playing along with the Guitar player. Thanks again.

Hi Harpdoctor

You can download sheet music for piano here:

www.everyonepiano.com/Music-862-The-Last-Waltz.html

It would require some work, I haven't checked it myself

Here's a tab for a diatonic harmonia:

Not sure if this is the same, but it's for chromatic

Hope these help.

Still trying to decide which one to get.

Which one do you use,
Which ones to avoid.
Anything else pertinent.

Thanks.

My wife likes a song sung by Englebert Humperdinck in 1967. "The Last Waltz"
I would like to learn it so I can play it for her birthday in October, but I can't learn by ear, and cannot find the sheet music for it,
Do you by chance have that song?
